Utility auto-pay form – or – Pay utility bill online

As of June 1, 2019 River Forest property owners are billed for their water and sewer usage on a bi-monthly basis at the following rates:

  • Water: $6.66 per 100 cubic feet
  • Sewer: $4.39 per 100 cubic feet

**The combined water and sewer rate has been increased 2.5% (27 cents per 100 cubic feet). The new combined water and sewer rate is $11.05 per 100 cubic feet.**

The increase covers higher operating and capital costs to fund the Village water and sewer system and the increase in the cost of water from the City of Chicago.

Every household must have a $45 deposit on file for water and sewer service. The deposit is billed on your first water bill. Water and sewer bills also contain the bi-monthly solid waste collection fee. (See Refuse & Recycling)
